Snapchat is going to come up with a visual product search feature(camera search) using its camera. The feature is codenamed “Eagle” that shows clients to Amazon’s product listings. This hidden unreleased code of Snapchat’s Android app is a camera search addition where you Press and hold to recognize an question, tune, standardized identification, and more! This works by sending information to Amazon, Shazam, and other partners. Once the necessary checks are done you’ll see all comes about at Amazon.
After Snapchat’s loss of $385 million last quarter and missing revenue estimates by $14 million and with Instagram which has two times the users and is six times faster growing social media maker to snapchat, this collaboration with Amazon can get revenues up for Snapchat.
Amazon didn’t react to a press request sometime recently distributing time. So, it’s hazy on the off chance that its effectively included within the advancement of Snapchat visual look or fair a goal for its comes about. Snapchat as of now offers its Spetacles v2 camera glasses on Amazon — the as it were put past its claim location. Snap Inc. gave TechCrunch a “no comment,” approximately visual look but the company’s code tells the story.
Project Eagle is built on audio search feature to offer visual search through a similar interface and set of partnerships. The ability to identify purchaseable objects or scan barcodes could turn Snapchat, which some view as a teen toy, into more of a utility. The snapchat code out doesn’t reveal much about how it works.
Whether or not the reveal come into usage is another matter. If you’re a Samsung phone user, when’s the last time you used Bixby camera search to shop on Amazon? Snapchat’s cross-platform support should make this object recognition technology(camera search) more accessible to convince users that it is more than messaging friends and sharing stories.
